The Mountain Equipment Lhotse Jacket is an all round jacket providing you with excellent weather protection in any season and for any mountain adventure. The best protection and breathability is provided by a combination of Gore-Tex┬« Pro 40D and Gore-Tex┬« Pro 80D fabric with the 40D fabric being found in the majority of the jacket and the 80D fabric being used as reinforcement in high wear areas.
The Lhotse has a range of storage options with 2 large pockets and a single napoleon pocket. It also has pit zips for heat dumping when working hard, adjustable, laminated cuffs and a fully adjustable Mountain Helmet Compatible Hood.
Gore-Tex┬« Pro is the toughest and most durable waterproof fabric in the Gore-Tex range. It has been constructed for intense activity that may include frequent stops providing the high levels of breathability required by the climber, mountaineer or ski tourer.

I did lots of research when purchasing a new hard shell and every time this jacket came out tops by a mile. It has also been number 1 in Trail Magazine for the last 3 years so I thought I'd treat myself to one.
Although it is quite expensive once you own one and put it to the test you'd actually think you have a bargain. This jacket is bomb proof. I've used it in heavy snow, heavy rain, strong wind and it's kept me dry and warm (with layers under). Although reviews said its heavier than some hard shells I don't think it is. It packs well, feels good quality and looks good. The hood is excellent especially with a helmet on as it fits to your head /helmet. The cuffs work better for me on the Lhotse than the Morpheus (I have both). I also like the zips better on the Lhotse as they are tough and easy to use even in gloves. I don't think there is a better jacket on the market. I've used and seen used rival equivalent jackets and the Lhotse really is head and shoulders above anything else. If you want something reliable and able to cope with extreme weather then but this jacket you won't be disappointed.
